The timing is so right for the word, Hope, not only do we all Hope for a vaccine that will cure the virus but we Hope that people will come to their senses and stick with the protocols of wearing masks and social distancing.
In the final article of this months “Our Daily Bread” the author talks about Hope in the Desert. It states that, “Just as He demonstrated with his people in the desert, He’s more interested I capturing our hearts, receiving our genuine worship and proving Himself faithful rather than provide a quick fixes or temporary solutions.” The author concludes by stating that, “He chose the desert then, and He uses it now to show us the beauty of Hope – Hope in Christ. Stay Awake, He has so much to show you in your desert season.”
What an interesting way to look at Hope as we enter the Advent Season a time for re-birth, lighting our individual ways and looking forward with renewed Hope in what lies ahead. May we all be blessed during this Hopeful season and in the New Year!
